The Potters

The Potter family were an old wizarding family stemming back many decades, but became particularly well-known when Lord Voldemort targeted Lily and James Potter and their son Harry, who was famously responsible for the Dark Lord's downfall. The Potter family could be traced back a twelfth-century wizard, Linfred of Stinchcombe, who made money inventing magical cures and remedies, a feat replicated by Fleamont Potter, whose invention of Sleekeazy's Hair Potion was sold for a vast profit. Linfred's son, Hardwin married into the Peverell family and inherited the Invisibility Cloak - a remarkable artefact that was unlike any other of its kind - and would ultimately make its way down to Harry Potter.
